The goals of this course are to provide education about the dangers associated with distracted driving, allow attendees to evaluate their own driving habits, and reduce their risk while driving by applying best practices.

OSHA: New recordkeeping rule will make injury data public; is a 'nudge' to employers

May 13, 2016 - OSHA has issued a final rule that will require employers to electronically submit worker injury and illness data, which then – in a controversial move – will be made public.

“We expect a simple change to improve safety for workers across the country for many reasons,” OSHA administrator David Michaels said during a May 11 press conference. “Behavioral economics tells us that making injury information publicly available will nudge employers to focus on safety. As we’ve seen in many examples, more attention to safety will save the lives and limbs of many workers and will ultimately help the employer’s bottom line as well.”

The Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses final rule states that establishments with at least 250 workers must electronically submit to OSHA – on an annual basis – information from their OSHA Forms 300, 300A and 301. Establishments with 20 to 249 employees in certain high-hazard industries will be required to submit information from their annual summary form,OSHA Form 300A.

The information will then be made available on OSHA’s website in a searchable database that the agency claims will be the “largest publicly available data set on work injuries and illnesses, enabling researchers to better study injury causation, identify new workplace safety hazards before they become widespread and evaluate the effectiveness of injury and illness prevention activities.”

Working to Raise Awareness on Distracted Driving Month

April 28, 2016 - Thousands have died in car crashes involving cell phone use. The National Safety Council (NSC), the North Dakota Safety Council (NDSC), and North Dakota State University (NDSU) Athletics want to empower you to put safety first and take back your drive. According to the NSC, 80% of drivers mistakenly believe hands-free devices are safer than handheld but studies show hands-free devices don't make drivers any safer as the brain remains distracted by the conversation.


Help the NSC, the NDSC, and NDSU's Carson Wentz spread the message on the dangers of distracted driving by downloading free distracted driving materials found below.

  • Tip Sheet: Myth or Fact
  • Poster: What's More Important
  • Poster: Do You See What We See
  • Infographic: Avoid the Dash
  • Infographic: Hands-free is Not Risk-free
  • Infographic: Driving Down Distraction
  • Infographic: The Great Multitasking Lie
  • You can pledge to your children, your coworkers, or other loved ones that you will be an attentive driver. Help us get the word out and take the pledge to drive cell free today, because distracted driving is not just a topic for April.
